Studies of radiation effects on graphite collimator materials Session 5: Codes and simulations results

Speaker

Description

The current status of the code development for simulating the structural damage of the graphite jaws of the LHC collimators produced by 7 TeV protons is presented. The technique, which is being developed in the framework of the Monte Carlo code FLUKA, combined with the results of experimental tests of carbon-carbon composite materials in radiation hard environment will be capable of evaluating lifetime of the collimation system.
